Summary

Three years on from her fairy-tale country wedding to the deliciously handsome Charlie Wellbeloved, Bella's life is far from the 'happily ever after' she dreamed of. Now, heading for the big three-oh at horrifying speed, she has gained a couple of stone from boredom and comfort eating, her fledgling interior design business is succumbing to infant mortality, she talks to her black Labrador Dolly more than she does her own husband, and now her close friend Maddy has announced that she's expecting a baby. How can Bella be happy for them when she pines for a family of her own and Charlie has barely touched her for months? Then Charlie meets rich, charming Rufus, who might just have the answer to their business problems - for a price. How far will Bella go to preserve her dreams?

Really enjoyable

It’s not essential to read the earlier book, but I’m glad I did, as it helped me put some of the characters into context. I enjoyed the first, but this one is much better in my view. The individual personalities are more vibrant, and it is a much more interesting story. I enjoyed it to the end, which is unrealistically happy and perfect, but hey, who needs realism at the moment? As usual, Emma Powell’s narration is perfect, and so easy to listen to. Lovely, I hope Rosie writes another one soon!
